dispatchers demanded more help from the county board of supervisors.but it's not just the employees who feel that way.spokesman francis zamora says the department of emergency management as a whole is on the same page. "we agree - we need more dispatchers, and we need to retain our dispatchers."right now it's not uncommon for call takers to work 12-hour shifts handling tense, stressfull pleas for help."there's a lot of mandatory and volunteer overtime that's taking place. that takes a toll on people's emotional well-being and physical well-being.""we've been running like that for the past two years. so there's a lot of angry, burnt-out dispatchers on that floor." ultimately, the benchmark is to have enough dispatchers to answer 90 percent of calls in ten seconds or less.but even with approval to hire 45 new dispatchers each year,"to pass is tough. so you're looking at one third, to maybe 15 percent making it."that's why union rep burt wilson also says retention rates need to go up. keeping more experienced dispatchers on board could help reach that 90 percent benchmark by next year with the mandatory overtime.if the
